Safe Homes

We partner with existing safe homes in BC to provide both immediate and long-term recovery for women and children rescued from human trafficking and abuse in Canada.

Prevention

We partner with a local program that supports teenage girls within vulnerable communities in BC. Mentors teach about resiliency, peer pressure and body image to instill self-confidence and decrease vulnerability to abuse.

Awareness

We work to raise awareness of human trafficking in Canada through online educational resources and screenings of The Twelve Thousand film.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING HAPPENS IN OUR OWN COUNTRY, TOO.

As a Canadian charity, we’re committed to working alongside and supporting fellow Canadian non-profits and agencies to prevent human trafficking, raise awareness and provide aftercare for survivors locally.

The true scope of human trafficking in Canada is underestimated. Between 2009 and 2018, police services in Canada have reported 1,708 incidents of human trafficking–however, these figures don’t consider the unknown number of victims that are not reported.

The Global Slavery Index estimates that on any given day there are 17,000 people living in modern slavery in Canada. Human trafficking is difficult to detect and subject to underreporting to police.

What Does Human Trafficking in Canada Look Like?

Read More

Victims of human trafficking may be: unaware that they are being trafficked; in precarious or vulnerable situations; fearful or distrustful of authorities; fearful of deportation or loss of employment; facing threats from the traffickers.

All of these factors contribute to the underreporting of human trafficking incidents to police. Members of vulnerable or marginalized groups are at the greatest risk of human trafficking.

This includes: Indigenous women and girls; migrants and new immigrants; LGBTQ+ persons; persons living with disabilities; children in the child welfare system; at-risk youth; and those who are socially or economically disadvantaged.

We believe efforts in Canada must be informed by survivors–just like our international work, which is why we’re creating an advisor panel of Canadian survivors.


We’re committing to support the work of Indigenous leaders across Canada to prevent human trafficking and provide resources and education.


We’re developing educational resources for Canadian middle and high schools to prevent trafficking and raise awareness of the signs and risks in our communities.
